We are staying at Ein Gedi Kibbutz tonight, and there are no surprises here. It's a lovely, simple place. Our map at check-in showed a map to their Botanical Gardens Restaurant, the same one with the great reviews and nice view. But this restaurant apparently doesn't exist. They won't say whether it's just closed because it's not high season, but we were directed to the only restaurant at Ein Gedi this evening, and this is definitely NOT the Botanical Gardens Restaurant that they advertise. This was basically like a hospital cafeteria, with rows of tables, bright lights, buffet style food, etc. It was especially unfortunate that there was absolutely no view through the dark windows. What a waste of a beautiful sunset! The cost was 130 shekels per person, which was a lot for this bland, cafeteria-style food. However, we are at their mercy with so little choice in the environs.
